I enjoyed John Carter quite a bit. I actually found it's multiple framing stories quite unique and almost mysterious. They gave the film some credibility it probably wouldn't have had. I blame the film's failure on both Disney and the - actually - the audiences who seem to want only what they are familiar with in name and style.
I own it on DVD an enjoy it quite a bit. Sure it has some flaws but there are far worse movies out there.
